Visited for the first time for a quick sit down meal. We were served by the owner (Bogdan) who was pleasant and friendly. My wife requested Gluten Free options, his knowledge and understanding of Gluten Free was extensive. He suggested the steak special, which was...More

Jack's place has become a favourite (close to home) place for coffee, breakfast or dinnner, we have tried them all. The food is always pleasing and the wait staff very accomodating. We have become fond of the staff and feel like we are part of...More

We were the only people there which says a lot on a busy Sunday afternoon. Service ok. Food average. Unfortunately, the handling of a minor incident was poorly handled by staff. They also followed up with some unpleasant and somewhat childish comments on a fb...More

We have been here several times, mostly for brunch. The food is always nice and we have no problems with the service. It is dog friendly and we are often joined by other people with dogs on the tables outside
